Artist Notes:
David L Carpanini was born in Glamorgan in 1946. He was trained at Gloucestershire College of Art and Design, Cheltenham, the Royal College of Art and the University of Reading. He was Professor of Art at the University of Wolverhampton from 1992 to 2000 and President of the Royal Society of Painter – Printmakers from 1995 to 2003. In 1969 he won the British Institutions Awards Committees Annual Scholarship for engraving and has since exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and in numerous other major group and solo exhibitions in the UK and abroad. Although solidly representational his pictures speak eloquently of abstracts – fear, isolation, and survival. They are set in Wales but the statements he makes are not confined to the Welsh valleys and the feelings they evoke are international.
